All I have to say is wow and thanks to the guys over at Silodrome for bringing this amazing artist to our attention. Jomar Machado creates some of the most beautiful futuristic vehicle creations I've ever seen. He started his career creating story-boards, layouts and art for print. Eventually his employer, JWThompson went from analog to digital and Jomar joined the change. In looking at his blog, his tools of the trade seem to be the standard fare 3D Studio Max, Mental Ray, HDR Light Studio and Photoshop. But what he does with these tools is nothing short of amazing. Check out the slide show above of his works and enjoy. If Jomar ever decides to sell prints of his amazing artwork, I'd be first in line to pick one up. Make that two.
